The Oregon Planning Programming Budgeting Systems Institute. Final Report.
McAbee, Harold V.
The Oregon Planning-Programming-Budgeting-Systems Institute, which was held August 19 through 30, 1968, was one of three such institutes financed by the U.S. Office of Education, Bureau of Vocational Education. It was designed to acquaint State level vocational education administrators with the potential and workings of planning, programming, budgeting systems (PPBS). The need for and potential of the PPBS approach to budgeting are outlined in this final report along with a discussion of areas for further research, development, and application. Briefs of all institute presentations and other activities are included along with an 84-entry bibliography on PPBS, the formal program of the institute, a list of participants, and an evaluation of the institute. Basic economic principles of PPBS are explained and applications of cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis are detailed. A sample cost-benefit problem is appended. (Author/DE)
